Winter After School Programs 

Winter Session II Programs began January 23rd

Baby Brushes - Ages 2 - 3.5 (Tuesday Mornings)

Let your mini Monet’s little hands investigate new materials, and engage in a tactile and stimulating experience. Children will be engaged in a fun and encouraging environment while participating in both structured and open-ended art activities.  

Some activities will be more project-based and broken into steps while others will be more exploratory.  They will all be developmentally appropriate activities that enhance and encourage sensory-motor integration, developing gross and fine motor skills, and of course, artistic expression!

Projects will be loosely seasonal/holiday based and will encompass a variety of mediums but will always include a painting element.  

Winter Session II began January 24th. To receive a prorated rate, call 617-467-5777!

*Caregiver must stay with the child for this class.

Li'l Brushes - 3.5 - 5 (Wednesday or Thursday Afternoons)

In a fun environment with fantastic teachers and upbeat music, each child will work to define their fine motor skills, to hold artistic materials such as kid safe markers, scissors, paint brushes... even how to use a glue stick! 

All of our classes for kids are process-based, which means that we focus on the art experience, and the emphasis on interesting and engaging materials and techniques, more so than the outcome. But don't be worried, each child will bring home beautiful pieces of art that they feel very proud of.

This is a drop off session, however parents/guardians are always welcome to stay and play with us!

Winter Session II began January 25th. To receive a prorated rate, call 617-467-5777!


"Afternoon Crafternoons" on Tuesday Half Days in Newton (1-4pm | Ages 6-11)

An open studio style class!

What is an Afternoon Crafternoon?

Unlike our other classes, this one is Open Studio style. Each week we'll have multiple crafts for kids to select. Our talented, energetic and kid-friendly instructors will happily tailor projects to meet the needs and interests of your budding artist. Your mini Monet's can spend all of their time focusing on one special project or create multiple pieces of art! Our staff will provide individualized instruction to meet the needs of the divergent learning styles in the room, making students ideas come to life. Kids will have access to paint, wood, canvas, fabric, mosaic, glass paints, craft tape, beads and other exciting craft materials. Glitter, Pom Poms, Rhinestones and Glow in the Dark Paint will always be on hand to take your project to the next level!

*Sign up by going to our Newton calendar and registering for each or every Tuesday you'd like your child to attend! Space is limited, so make sure to register ahead.
